Attention Kama`āina (Hawai`i residents)!

The Maui Ocean Center and HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union have partnered to encourage our keiki (children) to start saving today, for tomorrow.

All current and new kama`āina member’s keiki complete the Maui Ocean Center’s Petroglyph Activity Passport, open up a HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union Ocean Friend Savings Account with a $5 minimum, and Maui Ocean center will match up to 100 new accounts with $5, for a total $10 savings deposit!

As a mahalo, HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union will then mail you a free coupon for a Pineapple Dole Whip at Maui Ocean Center’s Reef Café.  Now that’s a saving!

See below for program details.

Partnering for Responsible Savings

Now through September 4th, 2021, existing and new kama`āina Nā Hoa Kai members keiki, 4 – 12 years of age, will receive an Ocean Friend Keiki Passport activity upon admission to Maui Ocean Center. To encourage keiki savings, completed Keiki Passports may then be redeemed at HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union in Kahului or Kihei for a $5 minimum Ocean Friend Savings Account (HawaiiUSA Prime Share Account). HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union will also provide a free Dole Whip coupon to be redeemed at Maui Ocean Center’s Reef Café by December 15, 2021.

The first 100 keiki to complete their Keiki Passport and open a Ocean Friend Savings Account will have their $5 deposit matched by Maui Ocean Center.

There are 12 locations throughout the park dedicated to ancient Hawaiian rock carvings, or ki`i pohaku.  These etchings depict everyday life for ancient Hawaiians, such as family, fishing, rainbows and more.  Keiki must visit the 12 individual replica stations and rub the image with the provided rubbing tool on their Keiki Passport. Once completed,  keiki, along with their parents or legal guardians, may then open an Ocean Friend Savings Account (HawaiiUSA Prime Share Account) with a $5 minimum and Maui Ocean Center will match $5, for a total savings deposit of $10, for the first 100 children.

Keiki Passports can also be redeemed for a Maui Ocean Center giveaway should they not wish to open a savings account.
